Diana Digs Dirt and also wood. Designers love to design anything and everything. The challenge was to incorporate the many discarded items found and create an outdoor kitchen/potting area that was functional and aesthetic, to look as though the treasure was meant for the space. You want to make sure you have a good carpenter on hand too.
The idea for the space came from cut stone, serving as the countertop and a frame was then constructed. 3 different sections were built for interest and size variation and also if they had to be moved. Much of the wood came from torn down houses and fences.
The gate is a door sawed in half and other doors served as cabinet doors. Other discarded items upcycled or recycled were; windows, table and chair pieces, a crib, shelving units, fence pickets, wood moulding, bed frames and a screen door.
This garden area is perfect for parties, potting or just relaxing. After a year or two several vines will reach the top to provide additional shade and beauty. Many thanks to my carpenter for creating this beautiful potchen. It has already been in use by potting up plants for Cornerstone Garden on State Street.
